Cosplays from Lanka Comic Con 2016 That Blew Our Minds.

Lanka ComicCon 2016 happened over the weekend and it was an absolute blast. There were so many participants that I'm sure at some point the organisers felt that they should have booked a TARDIS instead. However the JDA Perera gallery held up admirably.

Many notable events happened at Comic Con but what drew everyone's attention was all the cosplayers. Decked out in their very geek best, an entire pantheon of heroes, villains and beings from all kinds of canon appeared at Lanka Comic Con to delight, surprise and even horrify. The talented Prasanna Welangoda took some beautiful photographs of some wonderful cosplays. Check 'em out.

Mister J was in all his questionably hilarious glory. Evil grin and fake lapel flower and all. Oshita Narangoda brought him by ComicCon.


Harley Quinn dropped in as well, looking like she just came from the streets of Gotham.


Don't they make a lovely pair?


Sith lords Darth Maul and Kylo Ren, who masquerade as Father and Son pair Ishan and Aric Seneviratne in "real life", represented the dark side of the force. We don't know if they had cake but they did win their category in the cosplay competition.


Apparently Sajith Kandanaarachchi was at Lanka ComicCon but they could only find Spiderman.


Shyamal Makalanda brought a Predator down to earth. This guy was so amazing we wish we had the Ghost operative from Call of Duty he brought to last year's Comic Con as protection.


But  John Kozak from Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier and Hermione Granger also attended and it's hard to beat that combo. We have Ushan Gunasekara and Ashani Fonseka to thank for these two.


Jeevan Sukumaran brought Wolverine by as well. While Spiderman couldn't keep his hands off him, we promise no one got clawed… that we know of.


Knightmare Batman was here on Sunera Senadheera's invite. Sarongpool tried to get friendly. You'd have to ask Sohan Gunarathne on how Sarongpool fared there.


Here's Sarongpool annoying Negasonic Teenage Warhead, who looks a lot like Sheshadri Kottearachchi, who doesn't seem to care at all.


Jon Snow may know nothing but Shalitha Senevirathne knows Jon Snow.


Ryan Perera brought Raiden from Metal Gear Solid. As the sign behind him says, this was one of the rare occasions he was child friendly.


On day 2 Jeevan Sukumaran came with Harambe and the fires of revolution were stoked.


Nightmares were certainly on the cards with Freddy Kreuger here.


Agent 47 was here contracted by Sunera Senadheera. He was so good we aren't even sure if his contract was successful.


Opula Fonseka and Ethan Perera invited Corpse Bride and Victor Van Dort. They made the most gruesomely gorgeous pair.


Arthas of Azeroth made time to make an appearance. Ishaq Deen dropped him off. His sword Frostmourne was hungry enough to get an award in the cosplay competition.


Chathurinda Sumithraarachchi asked Nightwing to combat some crime at Lanka Comic Con. The organisers kept things tight as a drum though, so he joined the cosplay competition instead… and won a prize.


The Dovahkiin from Skyrim was here too. In Daedric armour no less. Thanks to Sahan Perera for inviting him.


The current Kazekage, Gaara was here as the representative of the Sunagakure. He was here on Janithri Kariyawasam's request.


Day 2 also had this wonderful image of two Spidermen in a Spider Tuk. Come to think this would be a faster way to get around Sri Lanka than webslinging. Sajith Kandanaarachchi and Eshantha Perera are to be thanked for this wonder.

Thank you once again to Prasanna Welangoda and his awesome pictures, and congratulations to Lanka ComicCon. We hope to see even greater things next year. As you can see Lanka Comic Con was a lot of fun and a big success. The cosplayers really pulled out all the stops. There's a lot more great work that we just didn't have room to post. You can find the rest of Prasanna's Comic Con pics have more great cosplays to see. You can find pictures from Day 1 here and pictures from Day 2 here. If there's any favourites of yours that we didn't show and you think deserve attention, do post in the comments.
